Symptoma of a Very Common
There is no disease so common In
tho United Hlates aa catarrh, because
it appears In so many forms and tit
tacks so many different organs.
It Is a common mistake to mlpposa
that catarrh 1m confined to tho nose
and throat, Any Inflammation of the
mucous membrane wherever located
accompanied by abnormal secretions,
lu catnrrlr. Catarrh of stomach or
bladder, or Intestines is nearly as com
mon ns nasal catarrh and much more
serious ttlt hough It Is true that stom
ach catarrh und catarrh of other In
ternal organs is the result of neglected
A now remedy has recently appeared
which so far ns tested seems to bo re
markably effective in promptly curing
catarrh, wherever located. The pre
paration is sold by druggists generally
under name of Stuart's Catarrh Tab
lets, and in addition to being very pal
atable and convenient, possesses extra
ordinary merit, In many cases giving
immediate relief from tho coughing,
hawking and constant clearing of the
throat und head, those symptoms with
which everyone Is famlllnr who has
ever suffered from colds In the head
Cutarrh Is simply a continuation of
these symptoms until the trouble be
comes chronic, and grows gradually
worse from year to year.
Stuart'H Catarrh Tablets nre com
posed of Blood root, red gum and simi
lar antiseptics and catarrh specifics,
from which it will be seen that no
secret Is made of the ingredients nnd
also that no mineral poisons are used,
as is tho case with many well known
For catarrh of the nose, throat, bron
chial tubes, for catarrh of stomach, in
testines or bladder no preparation Is so
safe and gives such rapid find perma
nent results as Stuart's Catarrh Tab
lets. All druggists sell them at COc. for
full sized package. You can use them
with assurance that you will not con
tract tho cocaine or morphine habit ns
the results from this catarrh cure are
apparent from the first day's use.
